Cypress Adds Three Solutions To Industry-Leading Programmable USB 3.0 Controller Portfolio

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced three new USB 3.0 solutions that enable new applications of the 5-Gbps SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard. The new additions to Cypress’s market-leading programmable USB 3.0 controller portfolio include the EZ-USB® CX3™ camera controller, the EZ-USB FX3S™ storage controller, and the EZ-USB FX3™ CSP controller, which is the industry’s smallest USB 3.0 solution. Cypress is demonstrating all three here at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in booth #380 at Moscone Center West.

“The EZ-USB FX3 USB 3.0 peripheral controller that we introduced in 2011 has fueled SuperSpeed USB proliferation in high-definition video applications including machine vision, document scanning, 3-D gesturing, surveillance imaging, HD video capture, and a variety of industrial cameras,” said Mark Fu, Senior Director of the USB 3.0 Business Unit at Cypress. “With the addition of CX3, FX3S, and FX3 CSP to the EZ-USB family, Cypress is empowering developers with more SuperSpeed USB solutions to accelerate their designs as the market transitions from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0.”

Enabling New SuperSpeed USB Applications

EZ-USB CX3 is a USB 3.0 programmable camera controller that enables developers to add USB 3.0 connectivity to any image sensors supporting the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface Type 2 (CSI-2) standard. CX3 supports MIPI CSI-2 version 1.01, up to 4 data lanes at speed up to 1 Gbps per lane, for a total bandwidth of 4 Gbps. CX3 is ideally suited for high-definition, high-speed image-capturing applications and is capable of streaming uncompressed video at 1080p at 30 fps or 720p 60 fps. CX3 supports many image formats including RAW8/10/12/14, YUV422 (CCIR/ITU 8/10-bit), and RGB888/666/565. Based on the proven FX3 Platform, CX3 comes with an ARM9 CPU and 512 KB SRAM, providing 200 MIPS of computational power for on-chip image data processing. CX3 supports multiple peripheral interfaces such as I2C, SPI, and UART, which can be programmed to support Pan, Tilt and Zoom or other camera control functions.
